According to team leader Jonay Cuayson of PDEA-SES, it has been a month since they began tracking the activities of the suspect who had been transacting illegal drugs up to Mindanao.
The suspects were identified as Abdul Gaffar Cabib Basman and Jalani Pilagidan Mangorsi alias Alex, both residents of Marawi City.
Mangorsi was injured following a gun shot from operatives and was rushed to a nearby hospital, according to PDEA-SES Director Levi Ortiz.
